LOOKING FOR A CABIN TO RENT
« on: December 03, 2017, 10:17:44 AM »
Hello everyone,

I'm not sure which sub-forum to put this in, but I figure that this one might be my best bet!

I'm looking for a cabin to rent for a few weeks this coming January (and end of December after Christmas).

Ideally the cabin is:

-quite rustic
-remote
-and somewhere lucky enough to be frozen over already

It does not need to be road accessible. Ideally it isn't. Ideally we take the snow machine in, and from there can do day trips, or multi-day trips hauling sleds w/ the canvas tent.

Does anybody have one, know of one, or have advice how I can find such a thing? I'm flexible on location, but am currently Ontario based.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I've got you covered if you're willing to drive up all the way to Red Lake and then hop on our ski plane.....we open the Olive Lake Eco Lodge the first week of January to our winter guests......guaranteed isolation and solitude.  Woodstove and the creature comforts of home within the confines of Woodland Caribou Provincial park.  The ice is usually 12 - 14 inches thick by then!

Hi Rosseau,

We rent out our "glamping" tent and could have it available at the end of December. You can check out our page here:

There isn't a place I'd rather be.

Thanks for the great replies, everyone!

"Glamping" and Red Lake area fly in are both quite tempting... I'll follow up if those options end up working best for us.



We would also be open to renting a hunt cabin, or other remote cabin in an area that is good for winter exploration. I suspect finding something like this is best done through word of mouth. -- there's some listings on services like AirBnB, but it's not quite what we are hoping for. We're already covered in the "cottage" category.

Thanks again!

Also, my apologies for creating a thread with title in ALL CAPS - I think I was feeling particularly excited at the time...
